Yesterday, with no outside prodding, Eagles assembled to elect a new Council.
Six candidates were nominated. Six passionate speeches. A close election with three winners. A peaceful transition of power.
Today, as the Council’s first difficult assignment, a heated debate about the qualifications needed to serve as a Clean Up Champion. In other words, Eagles arguing for the right to work on behalf of the group.
Self governance. No adult intervention. We should never take this for granted, because it is a privilege to watch unfold.
